Just like a Hallmark Movie 😂

it was great to see @Shapotomousand meet Mrs. Shap and her friend. 
 

She and her friend were eyeing the PING  drivers in our shop.  I tried my best to sell her one.   So  Bob would have clearance for his next buy. Isn’t that what we do for each other 😬

Exec 9’s Monday & Tuesday morning.  Nothing terrific Monday, +5.  Tuesday hit ball much better with couple birds +2.  No golf Wednesday or possibly longer than that until Storm Ian blows their Florida.

OK have not posted in here in a while but have been playing, and.... finally (at long long last 😆) have some *good* golf news to report:

Tied my 1-time only previously 9-hole low of 41
... and did it with a PB low of 13 putts 🥳 
(@ Shark River in NJ; White tees 69.4/123 and 3,133 yds front 9)

4 bogeys
3 pars
1 birdie (one ok tee shot, one good approach, one really good putt!)
1 double on a Par 5 (tee shot ended up under some evergreen trees .. had to punch punch out .. duffed the next shot after that .. SIX shots altogether to get onto the green...)

Hit driver off the tee .. not well, but only got into bad trouble that once; and most approach shots were very near to their intended targets. Putting was definitely a highlight - greens were reasonably quick but a little bumpy from traffic in the afternoon - I rolled 5 x 1-putts and grazed the edges on another 3 putts leaving the ball at about 2 feet or less. 

Lessons , Monte clinic and practice all starting to show some progress! 👍

Great round @cksurfdude! Congratulations on tying your previous best score over 9 holes. Sounds like all the work you've been putting in is starting to pay off and that putt total is phenomenal.

It'll be ok, just got to dust myself off and remind myself that it'll get better and be so sweet when it does. 

That sounds like the right attitude .. and try to keep in mind not to expect too much of yourself, too quickly .. when golf is not your full-time job but a sometime pastime...

(Later on when you become a retired old fart like me and have lots of time to practice and play, then you can get frustrated when you still suck 🤣🤣)

My course was wide open this afternoon and made it around in less than 3 hours... 

20220928_181551.jpg

 

This was is where my approach ended up on the Par 5 15th - looking back down the fairway. 

20220928_152124.jpg

I have been practicing my narrow stance, shoulders only, 1/2 and 3/4 swing shots with my wedges from 100 and in to dial in the distances.  After a driver and a 3 wood to 70 yards short of the green - I used a 1/2 swing 54 to hit a low spinner.  Hard to see but the ball mark is pin high on the right side of the picture, took a small hop forward and spun back toward the pin finishing below the hole.  Tap in birdie.

This is the picture I accidently took while getting my phone out of my pocket.  I added it because some might be able to tell what I was using on the greens today.

20220928_152126.jpg

I made several lengthy putts to save par (8-12 foot range) and on the 18th I rolled in a 20 footer from the fringe the close the round with a birdie.  

I am taking a day off work tomorrow to go play Memorial Park - home of the Houston Open in November (before they close to prep for the tourney).  Should be fun!
